This is hysterical . . . we should be able to laugh at ourselves . . . and it has more than a kernel of truth. Much as I love 'em.

I love it. Could add a few other choice bits as well:

62. John Lennon still rolls in his grave every time a Deadhead cranks up a version of Garcia trying to sing "Revolution."

63. Bad enough Jerry got busted for freebasing. Worse that he got caught freebasing in a BMW.

64. Jerry dies after an album called "Built to Last" comes out.

65. Built to Last

66. Donna on vocals or a ferret being tortured. A sadly difficult choice.

I could go on and on....and don't forget...this is my favorite band,,, Ever!

Couldn't agree more...

But, re-reading: I disagree about "mellow"...

Not that it matters.

67. everyone's wardrobe on stage 1989-95. Phil dressed like the guy who waits for the bus for 14 hours a day. Jerry--"hmm, shorts or sweats tonight". Gross.
Bob--did anyone tripping in the front row every think Bob's strangled nuts were screaming out in pain, not him screaming out in mock-soul?

68. Brent's tinkle tinkle Billy Ocean/ local access band synth sound of 79-81.

69. Bob Weir becoming the epitome of repulsive white bar blues band members and hanger-outers. The ones who think Bruce Willis is actually pretty good at singing the blues.

70. The rest of the guys being so retarded comunication-wise, that they couldn't listen to Jerry and take just one god damn year off the road so he could get his act together.
